I am begging everyone who reads this and uses Coolamon Scenic Drive to slow down.
I have lived on this road for nearly 20 years and the volume of traffic has increased enormously.
There are now about 200 houses on the stretch from St Helena lookout to Mullumbimby.
We have children and pets, like any other residential area, but have to tolerate cars and motor bikes and trucks doing 100 plus. This is putting us residents at serious risk of being involved in some kind of accident daily.
I have seen many accidents, some fatal, mostly due to speed. I am asking all you drivers please slow down!
And to those who think I am just being a silly old fool: at 14 I watched my father die in a ditch after being thrown through the windscreen and my little brother sustain severe head injuries. Dad was driving too fast!
